My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: Hosea 4:6
TWENTY-ONE: BABYLON UNITES
The Antichrist is going to use the united kingdoms and religions of the world to come power. Then once in power the Antichrist, with the aid of ten loyal kingdoms, will destroy Babylon, the one world government and one world religion anointing himself as the leader and god of the world. Many people at this time, especially the Jews will realize that they have been duped in serving him for years helping him rise to power, but it will be too late.
Nimrod knew that unity is unattainable and that there could not be peace and security unless the people of the world are united under one religion. Constantine knew that there would never be peace and security so long as the people were divided by their religious faiths. Muhammad knew that the people of the middle east would never cease fighting unless they were united under one God, one religion. The religions and governments of the world are seeking to unite the people of the world under one common religious tenet in an attempt to obtain world peace.
But the fact is Jesus did not come to bring peace.
“Think not that I am come to send, (bring), peace on earth: I came not to send, (bring), peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.” Mathew 10:34-36
First there is an Ecumenical movement within Christendom to unite the various denominations under one umbrella. Unfortunately this umbrella's ultimate objective is to unite Christendom under a false doctrine. A doctrine that preaches a different Jesus than the Jesus who died on the cross for our sins. For more information see links:

Is ecumenism biblical?
The Emergent Church
The World Council of Churches
Once Ecumenicism is accomplished within Christendom the emphasis shifts to the “Interfaith Movement” which seeks to unite the different religions and secular groups of the world under a single over arching religious totalitarianism that emphasizes human rights, peace and security as its primary goal. To achieve this goal all people unwilling to accept and adopt religious tolerance will be labeled extremist and initially marginalized, disenfranchised from the world's majority prior to out right persecution. The so called who claim to be tolerant majority in there demand for their version of tolerance for the good of the world will become intolerant of the minorities whom they will claim are intolerant for not participating with the rest of the world in false religious practices and worship. Like the Mason, people will be able to believe whatever they want to believe so long as they accept the legitimacy of all other religious faiths as being equal to one's own.
Side Bar: One of the core beliefs promoted by the Interfaith Movement in order to justify uniting different religions together is that there are “many paths to god.” This belief is thoroughly debunked by rational logic in that it requires dismissing extensive beliefs held by each individual faith.
The Jew, the Hindu, the Buddhist, the Jain, the Sikh, the Christian, the Muslim and others must rely on picking and choosing what is true and what is false about their own faiths in order for their faith not to be contradicted by the beliefs of the other faiths. Once a person decides to determine what truth is regarding God he/she is no longer accepting the objective and immutable truth as being revealed from God but is now the one determining what truth is based upon his/her own subjective and fickle thoughts not to understand the truth about God but rather as a means to achieve harmony, peace and security in world. Truth does not change with the dictates of mortal man. The mere fact that a person can change what they claim to be truth based upon their own subjective agenda demonstrates that they don't know the truth and that whatever they claim to be true is foundation-less including the own personal religious faith.
If a Hindu must remove one verse from the Hindu Vedas in order to adopt the Interfaith Ideology than there is not foundation that prevents another Hindu from claiming that ten percent or fifty percent or even ninety percent of the Vedas are false. The same can be said for the Muslim and the Koran, the Jew and the Torah and the Christian and the Bible. In an objective context this renders the the religious texts of each faith meaningless.
The IM is Polytheism, Henotheism and Pantheism repackaged.
The Interfaith Movement, (IM), claims that no one religion has the complete truth, that no one person has the truth about God and life and death. IM uses this rationale in order to breakdown the religious concepts held by each particular religious faith, these concepts that are barriers to unification. Once adherents decide to believe that all religions are acceptable to God they cease believing that there own individual faith contained the sole truth. Now they assert that all faiths have the truth. This is the religious faith of “Tolerance.” But this would be a deception.
In asserting that no one religion possesses the sole truth about God and the sole path to God, IM is asserting that itself possess the sole truth and path to God contradicting its own assertion used to negate the individual religious faiths of the world.
The sane logic that the IM uses to invalidate all of the other individual religious faiths invalidates the IM own religious ideology.
If you refuse to join the IM you will be labeled an “extremist” and subjected to persecutory laws not because you have done any harm to anyone or posed any threat to anyone but because you refuse to worship according to the dictates of the Interfaith Movement.
Jesus is not tolerant of falsehood, false worship or sin. Jesus would never compromise true worship and true prayer for the purpose of appeasing sinners' pretense of obtaining peace and security; for self-rule and for sin.
Jesus called the religious and government leaders of Israel, the very nation that God the Father used to reveal Himself to the world, sons of the devil seeking to fulfill the desires of the Devil. Jesus would have never participated in praying with those who pray to the devil. John 8:41-44
Jesus would never participate in prayer to Satan the Devil the father of all false religions.

Pope to head up U.N. Of Religions
"During a meeting with Pope Francis, former Israeli President Shimon Peres proposed that Pope Francis head up a UN-like organization called “the United Religions.”
Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.
“In the past, most of the wars in the world were motivated by the idea of nationhood,” Peres said. “But today, wars are incited using religion as an excuse.”
Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi confirmed to reporters that Peres had pitched his idea for “the United Religions” but said Francis did not commit to it.
“The pope listened, showing his interest, attention, and encouragement,” Lombardi said, adding that the pope pointed to the Pontifical Councils for Interreligious Dialogue and for Justice and Peace as existing agencies “suitable” for supporting interfaith peace initiatives."

"A problem with the use of prayer: It is our belief that prayer is an unreliable method to assess the will of God. We were initially divided on this matter, but a pilot study appears to indicate that prayer for this purpose is unreliable.
Evil in religion: In the importance of individual believers detecting evil influences and policies that currently exist within their chosen faith group, and strongly advocating for their correction. If significant improvement or elimination of sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, etc. is impossible, we feel that they should consider withholding financial support and/or leaving the group."

THE TRUTH IN MANY PATHS, (to same god):
Vatican declares Jews don't need Jesus to be saved
Pope John Paul II has said the fact that Christians and Muslims worship "the One and same God" is a factor that draws the two communities together and lays the basis for love and cooperation between the two communities of believers.
What is the motivating factor bringing about the unification of religions; the desire of peace and security, tolerance. The world falsely believes that it can obtain peace and security if the religions of the world unite together as one. There no peace outside of Jesus.
“For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace” Jeremiah 8:11
“Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:” Ezekiel 13:10
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” 1Thessalonians 5:2-3
There is one common denominator of all those participating in the Interfaith Movement:
they reject the deity of Jesus Christ;
they reject the work Jesus did for them on cross to avoid hell;
they reject salvation by faith alone;
they reject that this Jesus is the only way to God the Father, the Creator of the Universe to salvation.
"He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven." Mathew 16:15-17
“Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.” John 5:18
And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Acts 16:30-31
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6
“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.” John 5:23
If your world view is in line with the majority than you know it is not in line with the minority. It is not in line with God.
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Mathew 7:13-14
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Mathew 7:21-23
There are two kinds of religious people in the world. Those who are attempting to build God's kingdom on earth within and through the power of Satan's kingdoms and those who are waiting for God, for Jesus Christ to set up His Kingdom using His own power to accomplish this act.
Pope Francis, in New York, Takes On Extremism and Inequality
At the World Trade Center, standing alone and taking in the vast void where thousands of people lost their lives in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, Pope Francis lamented “a mind-set which knows only violence, hatred and revenge” and warned against the kind of “rigid uniformity” of belief that leads to fanaticism.
His words were calibrated, but his message was clear.
“Together we are called to say ‘no’ to every attempt to impose uniformity and ‘yes’ to a diversity accepted and reconciled,” he said.
In demanding that everyone accept diversity, Pope Francis is imposing his form own form of rigid uniformity.
Pope Francis’ address at Ground Zero Memorial in New York
Pope Francis said he hoped their presence together will be a powerful sign of their shared desire to be a force for reconciliation in this community and throughout the world. He went on to warn against attempts to create “a rigid uniformity,” saying “we can and must build unity on the basis of our diversity of languages, cultures and religions. Together, he continued, “we are called to say “no to every attempt to impose uniformity and “yes” to a diversity accepted and reconciled.”
Pope Francis is contradicted by Jesus. Who is correct Jesus of Nazareth who rose from the dead upon His own power or Pope Francis who will die in the next twenty to forty years and face the Jesus the Judge of the World?

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” 1 John 2:15-17
Pope Francis has sought human praise and honor in his attempt to legitimize the false religions and kingdoms of the world making himself an enemy to God.
“Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.” Luke 16:15
The world, the hundreds of other faiths, including the Jewish faith, do not believe that Jesus is going to destroy the kingdoms of he world, thus they don't believe in the bible's truths.
